Story behind the song
This song has always been one of my favorites. The author, James C. Moore, wrote the song based on Revelation 21:4 where it says "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and their shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." What a comfort. The key to God's love for the lost is found in John 3:16 which is often quoted, but I think more should be quoted so that the whole story is understood. John 3:16-21 says "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should now perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemed: but he that believeth not is condemed already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather that light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be manifest, that they are wrought in God." The simple truth is, I deserve God's wrath for the things I've done wrong. Jesus took on himself the wrath of God in my place, so that I can be forgiven, and God can remain Holy in his judgement of my sins. Thats the best offer I ever had in this life. Then on top of that, I'm given eternal life, in a place where there is no death, no sorrow, no crying, and no more pain. It is truly a land where my mama and daddy will "NEVER GROW OLD" Zan The Man 4/30/10
